World number two Rory McIlroy posted a video of his swing on social media and could be seen using the new TaylorMade M2 driver


Rory McIlroy Using TaylorMade M2 Driver

After Nike Golf announced they would stop making golf clubs and equipment last August, Rory McIlroy has had the freedom to use whatever equipment he sees fit.

The four-time major winner initially put the TaylorMade M2 driver in the bag and went to a Scotty Cameron putter – however, he did plenty of testing towards the end of 2016 and came up with a setup for 2017 he was happy with.

That setup included the new Callaway GBB Epic driver and fairway wood, along with Callaway Apex MB prototype irons, Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges, an Odyssey putter and the Titleist Pro V1x ball.

The 28-year-old added a TaylorMade M2 Tour 3 wood in for The Masters and now looks to have switched drivers as well.

McIlroy hasn’t played since The Masters and released a video of him practicing for this week’s Players Championship – using the new TaylorMade M2 driver.

He still looks to be using the Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage shaft.

Rory led the PGA Tour’s Strokes Gained Off the Tee category last season and ranked ninth in Driving Distance, averaging 306.8 yards.

The Players Championship begins this week where world number three Jason Day defends.
